WRECK OF THE MAHONING. -- The Columbian Insurance Company are now engaged in stripping and recovering pumps from the brig MAHONING, which it will be remembered was sunk last fall, about nineteen miles north of this port in ten fathoms of water. One pump with a small anchor and chain has already been secured. The submarine apparatus is employed in the service, but was temporarly driven off on Sunday night, owing to the high wind then prevailing. She will soon return to her work and it is not unlikely that the body of Capt. Taberner, who went down with her, may be recovered. -- Milwaukee News

SUCCESSFUL WRECKING. -- The submarine diver, with others who were dispatched from the steamer MAGNET, a few days since, to lake Michigan, to search for the steam pumps and other fixtures lost last fall on board the brig MAHONING, have returned here, having succeeded in rescuing the pumps and also recovering the anchors and chains on the vessel and nearly all of her standing rigging and blocks. The time occupied in accomplishing the above undertaking exceeded in little over half a day. The tug LEVIATHAN rendered valuable aid to the parties engaged in the above expedition. -- ??
